- Bring a large saucepan of water to a boil. Meanwhile, mix the vinegar, 1 tablespoon honey and 1 teaspoon salt in a small bowl. Add the daikon and press into the mixture to submerge as much as possible. Let stand until ready to serve, mixing occasionally.
- Add 1/4 cup salt to the boiling water. Add the snap peas and cook just until bright green and tender, about 30 seconds to 1 minute. Using a spider or slotted spoon, transfer to a colander and immediately rinse under cold water until cool. Drain well.
- Add the noodles to the boiling water. Cook, stirring occasionally, until just tender, 4 to 8 minutes. Drain, rinse under cold water until cool and drain again.
- While the noodles cook, whisk the soy sauce, sesame oil, red-pepper flakes and remaining 2 tablespoons honey in a large bowl. Add the chicken, soba and snap peas and toss until evenly coated. Season to taste with salt.
- Divide among bowls. Drain the daikon pickles and arrange on top, then garnish with the scallions, sesame seeds and additional red-pepper flakes.
- The soba with its garnishes scattered on top can be refrigerated in an airtight container for up to 3 days.
